If you asked me two years ago while I was in high school what career I would like to pursue I would have no idea. Today, I have found something I am passionate about and that is Radiologic Technology. Being an athlete for thirteen years, I have had my fair share of injuries leading me to X-rays and MRI’s. The human body really sparked my interest, but every career learning and teaching others about the human body wasn’t for me until I found Radiology Technology.
Radiology Technicians are like heroes. Without x-rays they do many people’s sicknesses would go un-treated , as well as undetected. The job of a radiology tech is sometimes very stressful, but even though that it is stressful they know it’s worth the stress because they are saving other people’s lives. When being a radiology technician it can be very dangerous because of the administering radiation, but the benefits of being able to know that you helped a person out ways all the negative factors of this career.
I currently attend Baton Rouge General School of Radiologic Technology to pursue an Associates degree through Northwestern State University. I chose this profession because I always want to help others. I want to play a part in the healing process of patients. Being able to help people determine things going on inside their body interest me and that is why I chose Radiology. The true definition of a Radiologic Technologist is the “medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations and administer radiation therapy treatments. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care”. This definition makes this job seem easy but it is not an easy job at all. We do so much pushing, pulling, and lifting of patients it is physically exhausting. When I first chose this profession I did not think there would be this much to taking images of someone. It is more than just placing a patient somewhere and
The first couple weeks of school are always the most stressful. They get you thinking about how the semester is going to be and different ways to get you motivated. However, the beginning of this semester is probably one of the most stressful semesters that I have encountered because being a part of the radiography program is a very big achievement. It is a program where I know I will have to be ahead of the game the whole two years, which keeps me on my feet. Throughout this paper I am going to discuss the reasons why I wanted to enter into the program, and the things that I have learned so far along with my short-term and long-term goals.
I hope to continue my education by attending West Virginia University. At WVU, I plan to study to become a radiology technician. I have always dreamed of working in the medical field. Radiology technicians are people who take x-rays, MRIs, mammograms, and images like that. The technician is also in charge of making sure the patient is safe in the process of imaging being taken. After completing my studies at WVU, I wish to find an available job in the state of West Virginia or a surrounding state. I have always dreamed of working the medical field, and being a radiology technician seems to be the career for
First, Radiology is intellectually challenging. A radiologist must integrate a broad base of clinical knowledge across organ systems and specialties with patient history and findings to transform pictures into diagnoses. Second, I believe that the communication and teamwork that are part of the radiologist’s everyday life are uniquely demanding. My interest in Radiology is deep-rooted and I possess the skills and qualities necessary to be an excellent intern and future radiologist. My volunteer work experiences have helped me refine and develop these qualities, and I have successfully applied them during my internships of nursing assistant. My pervious experiences and educations have helped me develop the ability to think visually, and pay strict attention to detail. While taking the program of Phlebotomy, I got the experience with quality control, infection control and safety procedures as well as laboratory computer systems. I have also learned to analyze and interpret data, work efficiently, and apply tools and science to solve practical problems. From my volunteer, academic, and professional experiences have affirmed my desire to pursue a career in Radiology. I am confident that I can apply these same skills to
My topic that I am researching is a Radiology Technician. Basically, their job is to help Physicians take x-rays and to help them out with the readings. They also perform cat scans, ultrasounds, and radiation therapy. This article informs the reader of the job duties and occupational specialties. It tells them what they need to be able to do, such as noticing detail and clearly communicating. It also provides them with educational and preparation opportunities. The training is provided and the work environment is in mainly hospitals or, if you are in combat, a mobile field hospital (#10). They need to be physically ready, able and willing to perform their duties. They have to be very alert and vigilant in trying to study and notice the
MRI Technicians also known as a radiologic technician, give image scans on patients to produce quality images of designated areas of the body. Becoming a MRI Technician isn’t a hard process but finding a place to work may be a challenge. The following information will show you how to achieve your goal of becoming a MRI Technician, or maybe you just wanna know the steps to becoming one.
My scholarship can be seen through my grades at Wahconah. My grade point average has not dropped below a ninety-six in my freshman nor my sophomore year. I plan to keep this up heading into my junior year. With having these grades, I know that in the winter of my sophomore year, I was eleventh in my class. I know this because I had to send my transcript to a private school who was interested in me for lacrosse, and gained very much interest seeing my grades. I have kept my grades up while also maintaining a job at Kelly’s Package Store and playing lacrosse all year round. Therefore, my I excel academically at Wahconah and plan to do no different in the future.

Scholarship has always been a major part of society, and is valuable in all aspects of life. The search for knowledge will never end, as scholarship is what creates innovations that benefit everyone. As a senior, I have come to realize how important education is. Being educated is what leads to better and brighter futures; therefore, throughout all of my years in school, I have worked hard. I have challenged myself with rigorous AP and honors courses, as well as keeping all of my grades an A. My constant hard work in school, I believe, qualifies me for the National Honor Society. I am willing

Radiologic Technology will provide me this with ever changing tasks with different circumstances and challenges that require problem solving, critical thinking, and determination. Radiologic Technology will allow me to have interaction on a personal level with patients and their families and provide the opportunity to improve their lives by searching for the things that don’t appear on the
